Meet your next
“Speaker of the Morning.
She is the Complete Package”
– Renegade Speakers Bureau
Can you remember the first time you were in a room with somebody who spoke to your head and to your heart?
“Speaker of the morning – she is the Complete Package”
– Renegade Speakers Bureau
Where it wasn’t about spreadsheets and statistics. Who took a message and delivered it in such a way that it created a logical, emotional and physical shift in your world? Who told you relevant stories mixed in with intelligent insights?
To be able to share ideas in such an authentic, meaningful and practical way is life or career defining for any audience.
It’s why I love what I do.
For me, as a speaker, my metric for success is:
For one person to have a light bulb moment that creates a ripple effect in their world
For one business or association to create a shift in the economy and community to create prosperity for the greater good.
For one sales team to shift their level of conviction, relevance and intention to contribute to the business
I wasn’t planning to sit through the session fully and I ended up spending one and a half hours because Bernadette did captivate me.
‘Conscious Selling’ –The Silver Bullet to Driving More Sales
The sales team that will overachieve is the team that is consciously capitalistic, humanly focused and is generous without sacrificing themselves or the business.
We are leaving and entering new economies at a rapid rate of knots and the connection economy offers new opportunities for those who are keen to exercise not just sales leadership but thought leadership and personal leadership.
In this provocative and stimulating keynote, learn to move beyond just being informational and influential, and step into the role of the inspiring salesperson buyers want.
‘Beyond Resilience’ – The Ultimate Gift of a Black Swan Moment
Black Swan moments happen to us all – those left of field moments we never saw coming.
Imagine having the foresight and tools to create calm from chaos, back yourself unconditionally and futureproof your career and life.
Hear Bernadette’s antidote to black swan moments – how she moved from Fortune 500 sales executive and business owner to finding her family deep in Australia’s welfare system, only to catapult herself onto the world stage doing something that lights her up.
She may not have climbed Everest or bent spoons, but having walked on coals and slept on nails, she provides practical strategies and tactics for you to move beyond resilience and claim your own black swan gift.
I recently heard Bernadette speak at VIVID Sydney where I was the MC. What was evident to me immediately was her passion. This translated into a captivated audience who hung on her every word. If you are looking for a speaker who will inspire your people to act, then give Bernadette McClelland a call.
‘The Business Of Connection’ – Amplifying Human Potential
Loved, loved, loved Bernadette’s presentation as the closing speaker at the Rev It Up Sales Leadership Conference in Boston. Powerful, fresh content. Filled with real-life examples. Delivered with flair and humility. Focused on what the audience really needs.
What’s next? The Future of Work tells us jobs today won’t be here tomorrow, skills needed yesterday are gone forever and algorithms will hold the key to our superpowers in the future.
So, how do we elevate our leadership skills to navigate this era of change? How do we amplify the human skills critical to bringing real connection back to business? How do we navigate this ‘connection’ economy we are now in, and still product the results that matter the most?
In this program you will:
Realise that leadership is from the inside out and address why the power of why is not enough
Value the intangibles that will create cut through in this time of uncertainty
Evaluate the VUCA economy and create your winning strategies to futureproof your career and your business
Embrace the skills we will all need for the next leadership revolution by revisiting our own human evolution
‘One Woman Rising’– Step Up, Show Up, Speak Up
A sense of presence is critical for women wanting to rise to a higher level of achievement.
Your personal presence trumps all else and is found at the intersection of courage, conviction, and clarity.
Women in business continue to fight the good fight and the biggest enemy can more often be themselves and not the men they are trying to match or the ceiling they are trying to smash.
This keynote identifies three reflective themes relevant to women in any role wanting to better herself and lose the shackles of self-doubt while Bernadette shares her journey of becoming Australia’s leading female speaker in the male dominated corporate sales space.
In this program you will:
Identify the key messages we send before we open our mouths
Strengthen your mental readiness
Learn to communicate for optimal leadership
Prepare to engage men as a critical pathway to inclusive workplace
Create a Powerful Personal Presence and stop unconscious bias in its tracks
Learn to say no and learn to say yes and know the difference
I received great comments about your One-Woman Rising presentation from many in the office, including the guys. I think they all found it relevant to both their professional and personal lives. Several thanked Ansell’s Women’s Leadership Forum for providing such a great opportunity for self-development. Thank you!
I would first like to say, it was lovely to meet you and I would like to thank you for delivering your presentation during the Women in Sales Leadership Summit at the Swisshotel in Sydney. It was a great success with an overwhelming amount of positive delegate feedback praising the calibre of presentation and extent of content addressed. Thanks again and hopefully we can have you back as a presenter or delegate in the near future.
‘Message Matters’ – Get Seen, Get Noticed, Get Business
Content and very relevant to today. Definitely like to engage further with training.
Bernadette was recruited to speak to 60 of our top salespeople in order to jumpstart results across the organization. RESULT: The workshop was followed by a year of company growth and her teachings have been incorporated into their sales training materials year on year.
Seth Godin once said, ‘ You don’t create a purple cow by being different. You do it by creating something worth talking about’.
The overarching message in this presentation is that ‘prospecting will never, ever get you clients! Your message to market will!’
More importantly, how do we shift a sales environment from survival in this uncertain economy, to being 100% relevant and totally strategic?
With an increasing amount of businesses unable to meet their targets, and an increasing amount of salespeople sounding like everyone else when asked ‘what do you do, what makes you different and what value do you bring?’, it’s time to think differently about introductions, segues and transitions. Ditch the pitch because message trumps method every single time. Know your message.
In this keynote, breakout session or program, you will:
Move from a state of “HELP, I’M IN SURVIVAL MODE HERE” to being ‘TOP OF MY TREE, STRATEGIC’
Position yourself as a RESPECTED INDUSTRY RESOURCE becoming 100%+ RELEVANT to your market and your buyer
Be 100% On – Answer the question, ‘What Do You Do?’ with so much more conviction
Prospect more efficiently (online or offline), segue within conversations more effortlessly, pitch yourself more effectively and increase your confidence as a result
Bernadette is a highly skilled sales role model and mentor. She has an approach to sales that is real world and we have found her inspiring to work with these past ten months. She isn’t phased by what might seem impossible. Well done Bernadette, all the best for the future.
